Our inspiration for Fancy Alpaca came from the time we spent in the beautiful city of Otavalo in northern Ecuador. Watching the craftsman work as they have done for hundreds of years and the beautiful high-quality products they create inspired us to bring these works of art to people around the world.
All of our products are purchased at fair prices from small family businesses, so they can help provide a better livelihood for their families and communities. As well we are a mother and daughter team that is based in Canada and Ecuador, so we have personal relationships with all of our producers.
We are proud to have the opportunity to work with the Fundación Cecilia Rivadeneira in Ecuador by giving 10% of our profits to help children with cancer. They support the children not only with medical expenses, but also through activities such as arts and sports to allow them to enjoy some of the best moments of being a child. For more information about the important work they do, you can check out their website at http://fcr.org.ec/ .
